Action superstar Jackie Chan leads a team of misfits into battle in the trailer for the train-set action comedy "Railroad Tigers."
Set in 1941 during the Japanese occupation of China, the upcoming movie casts Chan as a Chinese railroad worker who leads a small group of freedom fighters on a daring mission to sneak onto a freight train and steal the food supply from the Japanese army. Wang Kai, Darren Wang, Xu Fan, and Huang Zitao also star.
"Railroad Tigers" comes from Chinese action director Ding Sheng, who previously worked with Chan on "Police Story: Lockdown" and "Little Big Soldier." The film will be released in China on December 30, and will then arrive in the U.S. on January 6.
In this action-comedy caper harkening back to Jackie Chan's classic Hong Kong films, a railroad worker (Chan) and his ragtag group of freedom fighters find themselves on the wrong side of the tracks when they decide to ambush a heavily armed military train filled with desperately needed provisions. Unarmed and outnumbered, they must fight back against an entire army using only their wits, in a series of a dazzling set pieces and action scenes rivaling anything seen on the big screen.
